The Lazzaretti brothers Remo and Romolo started their bike building business in Rome in 1916. Romolo was the racer, who had some success internationally and Remo was the businessman who's accumen helped their little shop thrive. Now two shops and still selling bikes, the business did not produce a lot of handbuilt frames, though what examples there are are very nicely made and of an excellent quality.

This eye-catching mid 80s Lazzaretti road bike combines some of the best technology of the time and a beautifully made frame in a ready to ride L'Eroica compliant package. Built in Italy from Columbus' top end SLX tube set and the newly realeased aerodynamic 'Air' fork blades and crown, this would have been a top of the range frame at the time. The green to yellow fade paint job contrasts with the chromed rear end and fork blades, and the frame has a number of brand pantographs. Put together with a quality Campagnolo Victory groupset and 3TTT finishing kit, this is a good looking and competent machine just waiting for someone to take it out for a spin.

If you're taking part in L'Eroica or a similar vintage event, this bike is of the correct age, so you won't be disqualified for being a rule breaker!

The bike's been fully dis-assembled and professionally re-built by one of our mechanics. The frame's straight and true, and everything's been carefully cleaned and re-lubricated where necessary. If there are any minor issues worth noting we will do so in the overview section below. Please take a good look at the detailed photos so you can see the cosmetic condition of the bike before you buy.
